Favorite Pound Cake
 
good!!! 
 
needed: greased and floured tube or bundt pan 
 
preheat oven to 350 degrees f. 
 
use electric mixer if possible. 
 
1 cup  (2 sticks) butter (no substitute!)
3 cup  granulated sugar
5 large  eggs at room temperature
1 cup  milk or half & half
3 cup  cake flour or all-purpose flour, divided into 2 cups and 1 cup
1/2 tsp  baking powder, check date for freshness
1/2 tsp  table salt
1 tsp  pure vanilla extract (no substitute)
1 tsp  pure almond extract (no substitute)
2 Tbsp  orange liquor, brandy or bourbon
  or,
2 Tbsp  condensed orange juice
 
 
cream together, but don't over beat: 1 cup (2 sticks) butter (no 
substitute!) 3 cups granulated sugar add, one at a time, blending well: 5 
large fresh eggs, at room temperature add, alternating with 1 cup half & 
half or milk: 2 cups cake or all-purpose flour mix well. then sift 
together: 1 more cup flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (check date for 
freshness) 1/2 teaspoon table salt add at the last: 1 teaspoon pure 
vanilla extract (no substitute), plus, 1 teaspoon pure almond extract (no 
substitute) plus, 2 tablespoons orange liquor, brandy or bourbon or, 
instead, use 2 tablespoons condensed frozen orange juice, thawed pour into 
prepared pan (as above). note spray canned flour for baking pans works 
great. coat the pan thoroughly, but lightly. gently drop upright pan on 
counter to bring any air bubbles to the top and slice through with a 
knife. bake in preheated 350 degree f. oven for approximately 1 hour and 
15 minutes or, until golden brown. (try not to peek.) cool on a wire rack. 
 
note: if you use sour cream in the cake instead of milk (or half & half), 
add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda to last flour mixture. 
 
this recipe is delicious and is beautiful when baked at 500 feet altitude. 
see your cookbook if you need to adjust recipe for high altitude.
